Jive Communications Partners with Addition Networks to Bring Cloud Phone Systems to Massachusetts Schools

Leading Enterprise Unified Communications Provider Teams Up with Massachusetts’ Largest Nonprofit ISP and Technology Services Provider

OREM, UT – September 23, 2015

Jive Communications, Inc., a top-rated Hosted VoIP and Unified Communications (UC) provider, announced today a new partnership with Addition Networks, the largest nonprofit ISP and technology services provider for Massachusetts schools, libraries, and local governments.

Addition Networks, a division of the Merrimack Education Center, has over 20 years of experience helping customers stay up to date on constantly evolving Internet and network technology. As a Jive partner, Addition Networks can now offer Jive’s enterprise-grade UC solution to customers.

“We looked at several companies to partner with,” said Joseph DiFonzo, CIO of Addition Networks. “Jive was the perfect fit for us and our customers. They’re a quality company, independent and financially viable, with unsurpassed service and industry-leading uptime. They’ve been especially successful at converting schools over from old analog phones to cutting-edge IP technology that costs less, is easier to manage, and doesn’t become obsolete after a couple years.”

“We’re excited to have Addition Networks as a full-service partner,” said John Pope, CEO of Jive Communications. “At Jive, we’ve aggressively gone after several key state purchasing agreements. In California, we contract through CALNET— and in Massachusetts, if you want to reach practically every school in the state, you want Addition Networks in your corner.”

Jive’s Hosted VoIP offering can now be purchased through Addition Networks on Massachusetts State Contract ITT46 – Network Services. Organizations interested in learning more about Addition Network solutions powered by Jive can contact Addition Networks at or 978-275-1600 option 2.
